You are an all-around senior strategist with some depth and expertise in business, social and operations, with a strong understanding of how brands grow in the Social Age. You have experience from multiple categories, and across brands in different stages of growth. And you are also a true social-first subject matter expert.

You are comfortable in a dynamic, fast-paced, international work environment. You can adapt to a changing brief. You can handle high volume, high-touch work. And you can connect the dots across the complete journey to think through every touchpoint from purchase to loyalty and advocacy. You constantly try to explore what's next in the world of brand building. You are able to pitch bold new ideas and frameworks to global CMOs. You know who won the last Film Grand Prix at Cannes and who's best on Snap. You learn from APG and IPA as well as Instagram's Creative Hub. You love to work at the speed of real time trends and opportunities.

And you will serve as the team lead partnering with tiers of clients, cross-functional peers and a robust social team to transform the social presence of the world's biggest brand. You will work tirelessly to create the best-in-class social media brand of all time and you will also craft a modern approach to real-time opportunistic content, customer care and social-first experiences. And you will achieve this by pioneering new ways of working within an incredible agency network.
